The 12 days of Christmas are almost upon us, so how can we celebrate? Well, you can start by diving into our hand-picked 12 beers of Christmas set (one for each day, of course).
Read on to find out what you should be drinking this festive season…
BrewDog Hoppy Christmas – UK
Begin with a Christmas beer from BrewDog. This seasonal IPA is a beautiful blend of citrus, pineapple and papaya. Yum!
Portobello Brewing Co. Ho Ho Ho – UK
Ho Ho Ho is a rich red ale (likened to the colour of Rudolph’s nose), but there’s no need to save this for Santa to sip on. With notes of roasted chestnut and winter spices, this festive bottle is a great pick-me-up on a cold night.
ERDINGER Weissbier – Germany
Who wouldn’t love to be wrapped up, strolling through a German Christmas market right now? Thanks to drinks like ERDINGER’s classic weissbier, you can replicate the feeling from home!
Pacífico – Mexico
Are you missing the warmer weather? Bring out a bit of Mexican sunshine when you crack open a brilliant bottle of Pacífico – a pilsner-style lager which oozes quality.
Leffe Blond – Belgium
Cheese and chutney are wonderful at wintertime, and you can pair yours with this authentic abbey-style beer. It is smooth, fruity and goes down a treat with a slice of brie! Serve in a chalice for a full, flavoursome experience.
Inedit Damm – Spain
With tastes of liquorice and orange peel, this malt and wheat beer is a superb Christmas tipple. Brewed with plenty of sweet spices, you’ll be enjoying this one long after it’s finished.
Flensburger Gold – Germany
Flip the top off one of these bottles and fill your glass with this gorgeous golden brew. It’s nice and refreshing!
Quilmes Clásica – Argentina
Try this invigorating lager from Argentina. Quilmes Clásica has a light body but a malty character. Who knows, you might’ve found a new number one pint in time for Christmas!
Flying Dog Easy IPA – USA
Celebrate the holidays like an American with a glass of Easy IPA from Flying Dog Brewery. This “sessionable” IPA has heaps of hoppy flavour.
BrewDog Punk IPA – UK
Indulge in a familiar favourite by glugging back a can of Punk IPA – a well-loved beverage around the UK. The Scottish brewers are keen on craft beers and this happens to be their very first!
ABK Hell – Germany
With hints of herbs and pine, this Helles is light yet satisfying. It’s ideal to slurp down after you’ve filled up on tasty treats throughout Christmastime. Prost!
Schloss Eggenberg Hopfenkönig – Austria
Finally, finish off with a Hopfenkönig pilsner, brewed with the distinctive Saaz hops. You’re bound to appreciate this crisp, dry drink on a winter’s evening this December.
You can grab all of the above beers when you purchase our 12 World Craft Beers of Christmas Gift Set. This perfect pack of goodies also comes with a branded Flying Dog Pub Glass and Beerhunter Bottle Opener.
